Curry Chicken Katsu

Crispy panko-crusted, curry marinated chicken, coconut rice, and pickled mango. Curry spiced chicken thighs, fried to crispy perfection, served with fluffy coconut rice, sweet-salty pickled mango, cucumber, and fresh cilantro. The pickled mango is a tasty addition to this curry katsu. I prefer to use under-ripened mango to make the pickles. They are easier to […]

Hawaiian Summer

Pineapple rum, fresh mango puree, coconut water, li hing mui, and a splash of coconut milk. Summer calls for fruity cocktails utilizing the season’s best fruit and some locally crafted spirits.

Strawberry Shortbread Sandwich Cookies

Buttery strawberry shortbread cookies filled with a strawberry Italian meringue cream-cheese buttercream. Freeze-dried strawberries make these dainty little cookies pop with strawberry flavor. Why use freeze-dried strawberries? For a couple of reasons. One, freeze-drying removes moisture from the berries, which would compromise the structure of recipes like shortbread and buttercream. Two, freeze-drying concentrates the fruit’s […]

Lemon and oregano spiced tuna meatball pita with fresh and pickled vegetable relish and a creamy yogurt sauce. To make this dish, you need to start with the freshest tuna you can find.

Korean Glazed Swordfish

Gochujang glazed swordfish fillets with kimchi fried rice. Sweet-spicy ginger, gochujang glazed swordfish with kimchi-cabbage and vegetable fried rice. I don’t usually make a lot of spicy dishes, but my love for kimchi took over on this one. The fish and the rice in this dish both have spice. Some of which get balanced out […]

Sausage and Kale Stuffed Pasta

Chicken sausage, kale, and ricotta stuffed jumbo shells, baked in a sweet potato cream sauce. Italian chicken sausage mixed with wilted kale, ricotta, and pecorino stuffed in large pasta shells, tucked into a creamy sweet potato sauce and baked. The title of this recipe is stuffed pasta instead of stuffed shells because any filled pasta […]

The dough for this recipe is a simple pie dough made with dark rye flour and all-purpose flour. […]
